Sony Vaio Laptop S Series Laptop Repair
Data Backup, Windows refreshment, Windows update, and Antivirus installation for a Sony Vaio S Series Laptop for a customer from Richmond Hill Ontario.
Sony Vaio S Series 13P is an important tweak to the previous Vaio S line, which I’ve reviewed twice before. The premium version I reviewed, the SVS13A190X, isn’t cheap; it starts at $1,119, but then again, there are a host of improvements over the $1,050 Sony Vaio SA41FX that I reviewed less than six months ago. Sony has added a slot-loading drive and a larger touch pad; more RAM is included, and the hard drive is larger; there are a new, faster Intel CPU, better Nvidia graphics, and an integrated battery.
The upgraded premium version of the Vaio S bears a carbon fiber lid: it feels rigid, but still flexes as much on its center hinge as previous models. However, the partial carbon fiber construction of the S Series 13P makes it surprisingly lightweight for its size, at 3.7 pounds. It’s easy to lift with one hand. The move to a carbon fiber lid (as opposed to magnesium alloy on the “regular” Sony Vaio S Enhanced) shaves 0.1 pound off.
A cleaned-up look lends the new Vaio a touch of minimalism. A slot-loading DVD drive replaces the tray-loading version from the last Vaio S. A larger, far wider clickpad looks much cleaner than the old, smaller touch pad with its discrete buttons beneath. Still, odd buttons and toggles like the Stamina/Speed graphics switch remain above the keyboard area, adding extra clutter (honestly, why can’t the switch be software-based or automatic?). The switch toggles power profiles, and can disable the GPU in Stamina mode, but there’s no reason why this laptop couldn’t simply rely on Nvidia’s Optimus technology for automatic switching instead.
